We are at the beach, Bugsy & I went straight to the sand after arriving and he was immediately charged by two male intact labs. They were off leash, he was on. What did he do?
He stood there.
Basically his body language was 'so what'
I released him from the leash and he gave them a sniff and took off running in joy.
This morning a boxer that was on the adjacent balcony went after him very aggressively (wood bars between them) he just stood there, with a "dude you have issues" look. The boxer was carted away by its owner, Bugsy however went right back to the bars, tail wagging.
He made friends with an Aussie/chow mix that was fearful of large dogs.
And a teeny little guy that was all teeth when they met.
Then there the two JRT's he found irresistible, despite one of them being obsessed with humping his leg.
He thought the cleaning lady was the most fun human on earth and brought her various items.
And the baby wire-haired dachshund was clearly in need of a large leader/protector.
The Beast isn't easy on my shoulders but otherwise is a pleasure to travel with, the only noise he makes is crying to see other dogs or people.
